Swordfishing in the Florida Keys is unbelievable! Once you’re hooked up to one of these bad boys you will get the ride of your life! In the past most swordfishing was done at night with hydro glow lights or under water lights. Now it is more commonly practiced during the day with weights and drifting deep ledges. This type of fishing is full contact as you are using a stand up rod while strapped in with a harness because their power is unbelievable! So whether you want a day or night time trip be prepared for a fight of a lifetime!
Here in Islamorada we are lucky to have such a great fishery as we are a nursery for these swords. However in the winter we are less likely to fish for them as the weather is generally a little more rough. When the winds die down hold on because this is one amazing fish!
